Our five favourite micro gps units
Small enough to fit into your pocket
Skycaddie SR1 £129.95 www.skygolf.com
The SR1 is laden with tech, but Skycaddie say it’s the lightest and most compact micro on the market. You get green distances, lay-up targets, shot distance measurement, digital scoring and hole stats.
Golf Buddy CT2 £129.95 www.gpsgolfbuddy.eu
It can be clipped to almost anything. You get all the usual distances plus lay-up and hazard yardages, an odometer and a clock. The CT2 comes with a lanyard so it can be secured to the towel ring on a golf bag, too.
Bushnell Neo Ghost £99 www.bushnellgolf.com
GPSS don’t come much more straightforward than this. Distances are shown to the back, centre and front of each green and up to four hazards per hole. Bushnell says you can play three rounds before recharging it.
Golf Buddy Voice 2 £114.95 www.gpsgolfbuddy.eu
Walk anywhere on the hole and push the Voice’s button to find out how far you have to the front, centre or back of a green. It can even be clipped on to a cap or worn with a wristband (sold separately) as a watch.
Garmin Approach G10 £129.99 www.garmin.com
Distances are limited to front, back and middle, along with hazards, but there is a view to show the shape of the green and you can manually position the pin. An odometer tracks how far you’ve walked.
